How to Convert Joules to Megajoules
To convert a measurement in joules to a measurement in megajoules, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 joules/megajoule.
Since one megajoule is equal to 1,000,000 joules, you can use this simple formula to convert:
megajoules = joules ÷ 1,000,000
The energy in megajoules is equal to the energy in joules divided by 1,000,000.
Joules and megajoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Joule?
The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter. One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.
The joule is the SI derived unit for energy in the metric system. Joules can be abbreviated as J; for example, 1 joule can be written as 1 J.

What Is a Megajoule?
The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megajoules can be abbreviated as MJ; for example, 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.
